Elaine Orr

Author Elaine Orrabout this book: Usually when you find out your husband has been cheating, it's with another woman. Jolie Gentil's husband had his fling with one-armed bandits in New Jersey casinos. That still doesn't make Jolie feel better, and does not make for a good divorce settlement.

Jolie moves to Aunt Madge's Cozy Corner B&B at the Jersey shore. Her cat Jazz is soon at ease with Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. When her first real estate appraisal job uncovers the body of a former high school classmate's mother, it's clear Jolie's transition will be less smooth.

The mundane work of appraising real estate gets mixed with runs-ins with a wise guy who wants her to repay her ex's gambling debts, efforts to prove her classmate, Michael, did not commit the murder, and a sometimes uneasy friendship with long-ago friend Scoobie. If Jolie knew the murderer she could stay out of their way. If she can't figure it out, there could be another body.
